Among some of the uploaded videos already featured on the channel, there are “Robin Williams Live on Broadway: Golf,” “Robin Williams Live on Broadway: Koko the Gorilla,” “Robin Williams Spark of Madness,” and also an interview with Lewis Black on how he became friends with the comedian.
Williams’ career took off thanks to the hit sitcom Mork & Mindy where his improvisations and bursts of wit left audiences keeled over in laughter.
After his success on TV, he went on to star in hit movies, including Good Morning, Vietnam; Dead Poets Society; and Mrs. Doubtfire.
Williams was nominated for four Oscars during his career and took home the statue for 1997’s Good Will Hunting.
Unfortunately, the actor and comedian passed away at age 63 in August 2014 after battling Lewy Body Dementia, a type of brain disease that affects thinking, memory and movement control. Lewy Body Dementia is the second-most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease.
Williams is survived by his three children, 36-year-old son Zak, 30-year-old daughter Zelda, 28-year-old son Cody, and his widow Susan Schneider.
Earlier in March, Zelda shared an old strip of photos of her with her father while spring cleaning.
“Isolation spring deep cleaning is turning up some fun old gems,” she captioned her post. The first picture shows the pair smiling at the camera, the next two photos Robin and Zelda are showing off their sillier side.
The new YouTube channel began as a partnership between Time Life and the Robin Williams Estate. New videos will be uploaded each week through the end of June.
